Weekly Wears: BananaRama

Have you ever had a pair of tights that you plan your whole outfit around?  Yep.  I adore these tights.  My husband (who knows me oh-so well) got these for me for Christmas, and they immediately shot to the top of my "most fun to wear" list.  Sure, I get some sideways glances from older ladies when I'm out and about, but I really don't care.  I just wear what I love.  It makes me happy.

Dress: vintage from Red Velvet;  Sweater: old old old;  Tights: ModCloth;
Shoes:  c/o Lulu's;  Necklace: handmade (Hope has the other half of the bf)

So... we are leaving for Florida today (yay)!  I still haven't packed or anything, so I'm off to do a whole lot of that right now!  I will still be blogging while we are on vacation, so you'll get to see peeks of our fun time.  
Have a great day!  xoxo Katie

  36. I love those tights! You are so adorable, nice combo!

  37. This outfit is perfect! I bet those ladies look at you and think this exact series of things:
    1. What is she wearing?!
    2. I wanna wear that...
    3. She's so lucky she can pull that off.
    4. I could never wear something that awesome
    Which is an big range of emotions and thus produces weird faces!

    Also, I happen to be from Miami, FL so I suggest you pack a few warm things. Just a sweater or two just in case. Our "cold" is more like spring elsewhere, but it's still not short shorts weather :] Hope that helps you in packing!

  40. those tights are so cute! i'm in florida right now! have fun!

  41. I don't understand why anyone would give you sideways glances. You're too cute! I agree with what one of your other commenters said about the ladies...they're probably just wishing they could pull off the look. Have fun and safe travels in Florida! <3

    ReplyDelete
  42. I totally love your attitude! 'I wear what makes me happy'. That should be my motto. And not just for clothes! Just to do whatever makes me happy! Of course, I say that, and it isn't always so easy!
    But I love your style though! If I wore those tights I'd probably be shy, since not a lot of people wear tights like that...But you know, if you love them and you love them ON you, why not?! I really need some of your perspective to rub off on me!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think you nailed it. And if anyone can pull off those tights, it's you! The yellow looks lovely with them!

    ReplyDelete
  44. would it be too cheesy to say, "those are tight-s!" ;) oh well, i guess i'm going to be that girl.

  51. aw i love this outfit. and i know what you mean with side-way glances. but don't ever let that bother you. every time i start to feel self conscious about being too "outgoing" with my style, i just remind myself that life is way too short to be boring with your style! might as well do what seems right to you and what will make you feel happy or proud of yourself, or just cool!
    you have great style.
